We only just reviewed Shark’s brand new Detect Pro vacuum, which was released this autumn, and Shark’s nifty, feature-packed cordless is already heavily discounted in the Black Friday sales. What it does best is automatically change its settings in response to its surroundings, which makes vacuuming a breeze. And now you can get a huge £120 off its £349.99 launch RRP, bringing the price down to just £229.99.
You can also buy it at the same price from Amazon, or for 1p more from Argos.
The offer in the US isn’t quite as compelling, although it’s still a solid discount. It’s available from Shark for $299.99, down from $379.99, saving 21%.
When we reviewed it, it had already been reduced to £279.99 in an early Black Friday sale, but with this second discount, it’s an outright bargain buy – although its features and performance are far from budget.

We gave it a glowing, four-star review, and here are the features we liked best about it.
It’s a light and manoeuvrable vacuum, weighing just 2.76kg.
Switch it into Auto mode and the vacuum will adapt itself to your home. It’ll turn on its headlights when you vacuum a dark corner, turn up the brush bar power when it detects a carpet, turn up its suction when it spots more dust or when it’s cleaning against a wall. It makes vacuuming a doddle.
It has an easy-empty bin that you won’t need to go poking around in to remove dust and hair.
Its anti-hair wrap roller is effective against tangles of long hair and pet fur.
You can also opt to buy it with an auto-empty stand – also in a Shark Black Friday deal – where it’s down from £399.99 to £329.99. In the US, that price is $379.99, down from $449.99: get it from Shark.
